Home Sweet Home

For the next five days, I have no other obligations but my family.  (Oh and that paper I need to work on for my graduate class, but I plan to have that done tomorrow.)  I am looking forward to focusing on the six people that mean the most in my life.  The people that bring me joy, even when I'm a little frustrated with them.  Like any wife and mother would admit if being truthful, they drive me up the wall at times, but I love them with all my heart.

Among my many blessings, I am grateful to have been blessed with a husband who is a wonderful cook.  I am looking forward to the amazing meals that he will prepare during out break.  I am looking forward to the help I will receive (and have already received) from the children as we catch up on housework.  I am also looking forward to decorating the house on Friday for my favorite holiday - Christmas!

For now, I want to enjoy the here and now - not rush into what tomorrow brings.  Right now I am enjoying a cup of tea from my Keurig.  Great for my cold and sore throat!  Hoping a few cups of tea before bed will help me feel better in the morning so I can knock out that paper I have to write!

It's really hard to keep in this moment.  As you see, I already started talking about tomorrow and my paper.  My kids are growing up way too fast.  I used to wish away the days, looking forward to their futures.  Now I know that those futures come quickly.  Over the next five days I am going to work on enjoying the moment while working on letting tomorrow worry about itself. (See Matthew 6:34)


  1. I am SO jealous right now. My family is moving over this weekend, so I have very little relaxation in store for the next week or so. :-)

    1. I didn't get that paper done until about 11pm last night. Good luck with the move!
